How is Abhimanyu not over-ambitious but Shefali is, simply because she is prioritising her work?
The longest-running show on Indian television Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai had a major leap a few weeks ago, which introduced a new cast, new love triangles, and a new family, the Birla family.
Harshad Chopda, the new main lead is the central character of this family and almost everyone in his family is a renowned Doctor/Surgeon, except for his mother, Manjari, who is a housewife. I was glad that the show tries to focus on how Manjari is demeaned because she is “just” a housewife. Plus, they also show how Abhimanyu realises it and supports his mother fully.
The problematic characters, (despite the makers being aware of how the 21st-century works), are Abhimanyu’s cousin, Parth, and his wife, Shefali. Parth is a MBBS degree holder but doesn’t practice medicine because he had a passion for music and cleared MBBS just for the sake of his family’s name.
Shefali on the other hand is shown as an “overly-ambitious” journalist who doesn’t have time to contribute to their relationship. She is often shown as the villain of their relationship – Parth is gloomy all day long since Shefali isn’t around, and Shefali has to miss out on important family functions because of her chaotic work conditions.
Really, Parth? Get over it.
Recently, Parth and Shefali argued because she received a last-minute work call just before Abhinanyu’s Tilak ceremony. The entire family was furious because “Kaisa lagega agar Devar ke Tilak me Bhabhi na ho toh?” (It looks bad if the bhabhi is not present at her brother-in-law’s tilak ceremony!)
On the other hand, Abhimanyu was the last one to arrive at his function because he had to perform surgeries back to back.
Why was Shefali shown as the villain of the hour? Abhimanyu was a hero because he saved lives, yes, but weren’t they both doing their respective work?
How is Abhimanyu not over-ambitious but Shefali is because she is prioritising her work?

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
